Good morning, thanks for the question

Arthritis is an inflammatory condition that can attack various joints ranging from small joints such as fingers to large joints such as knee joints. The causes of arthritis are very diverse, including:

1. Infection
2. Degeneration
3. Autoimmune diseases
4. Metabolic diseases
5. Repetitive movements

Arthritis can be diagnosed through symptoms, physical examination, and investigation. Symptoms can include pain, stiffness, swelling, redness, barriers to joint range of motion, and changes in joint shape. While physical examination can be found signs of inflammation (swelling, pain, redness, warm touch), reduced space, narrowing of joint gaps, or the formation of new bone. Supporting examinations that can be done to help the diagnosis include blood tests and joint X-ray examination.

The symptoms that you feel may not be specific to arthritis and need to be confirmed through a physical examination, so you should do further consultation with your doctor for further examination and diagnosis.

That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
